     Updated at 11:15 AM Saturday--United Launch Alliance launched a Delta IV Heavy rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in northwestern Santa Barbara County at 11:10 AM Saturday morning.

    The payload is a reconnaissance satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office.

    This launch had been scrubbed several times during the past couple of months for various reasons.

    But Saturday's launch went off without a hitch.
